Transceiver Prototype and Experimental Results
this chapter describes the experimental CMOS prototype IC that was developed to evaluate the performance of the different sub-blocks of the radar system. The first part of this chapter is dedicated to the description of the prototype IC and to the design of the short pulse generator circuit and the amplifier circuit needed in the receive path. The second part of the chapter describes the experimental evaluation of the circuit and presents the measured results for each of the radar system sub-blocks. The experimental evaluation procedures used during the testing of the prototype IC, are also described.
